Bookrageous BEA Bash with Vol. 1 Brooklyn, Small Demons, and FSG’s Work in Progress
Housing Works’ Bookstore Café (126 Crosby St., Manhattan)
Join Bookrageous, “a podcast about books and why they’re awesome” and co-sponsors Vol. 1 Brooklyn, Small Demons, and FSG’s Work In Progress for a party featuring some of our favorite authors — hijinks guaranteed to ensue.
Featured Authors will include (drumroll please): Megan Mayhew Bergman (Birds of a Lesser Paradise), David Macinnis Gill (Invisible Son Black Hole Son, Soul Enchilada), Brian Francis Slattery (Lost Everything), J Courtney Sullivan (Maine, Commencement), and Emma Straub (Laura Lamont’s Life in Pictures, Other People We Married).
We’ll be doing a special raffle to raise money for Housing Works! We’ve asked Jami Attenberg (The Middlesteins, The Melting Season), Kate Christensen (The Astral, The Great Man), Jennifer Egan (A Visit From the Goon Squad, The Keep), Ben Greenman (Celebrity Chekhov, What He’s Poised to Do), Lev Grossman (The Magician King, Codex), Emma Straub (Laura Lamont’s Life in Pictures, Other People We Married), and Justin Taylor (The Gospel of Anarchy, Everything Here Is the Best Thing Ever) to make you a mixtape of a few of their favorite party songs. The mixes will be available on Spotify to one and all, but at the raffle you could actually win a mixed tape, filled out and signed by one of them — because there is nothing more satisfying than an actual mixtape. Raffle tickets will be $5 each, or 5 for $20, and all proceeds will benefit Housing Works.
